"What people hear about us, is the problem", said Mehdi, a teenager from Libya, who arrived by boat and now lives in Italy with his family.

But Italy’s far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has said, ‘Italy is not a refugee camp’. He claims all ports are closed to rescue boats and to those who seek refuge.
